Twilight Christmas Parade



Full of colour and personality, the Twilight Christmas Parade will roll along Commercial Road on the Saturday 17 November from 6pm. Signifying the start of the Christmas Season it brings the community together for an evening of fun and celebration in the iconic setting of Port Adelaide.

Services, local businesses and volunteer organisations are the hear and soul of the event, with over 1000 community members joining in the parade alongside their colourful, quaint and downright quirky floats.

Thousands of visitors and locals flock to the streets of Port Adelaide to witness a Parade that celebrates both the festive season and the vibrant Port Adelaide Enfield community.

The FREE After Party kicks off at 7pm and features:

  • Santa’s Cave
  • Roving entertainment
  • Amusements
  • Market Stalls
  • and more!

Plus... A festive fireworks display will be held over the Port River at 9.10pm!

This year we aim to minimise the environmental impact of our street party by introducing a 3 bin system and banning one use plastics.
